A new range of 3-D Ultrasound volume processing and image rendering software products has been developed that can create photo-like images for early diagnosis of fetal abnormalities.
The software can generate Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) and rendering views, and fetal skeleton visualizations showing physical defects and bone mineralization. This is the first real-time volumetric image processing software for 3D and 4D ultrasound images and guarantees good image quality throughout the volume using intelligent near- and far-field progressing.
The REALiCE ultrasound visualization software that works together with the GOPiCE 2.0 real-time 3D/4D ultrasound volumetric image processing software, and the new GOPView Mammo3 mammography image processing software was developed by ContextVision (Stockholm, Sweden). ContextVision announced the new software at RSNA 2014.
According to Dr. Anders Selbing, of Karolinska University Hospital, "REALiCE provides superior visualization of subtle brain defects and other fetal anomalies. Standard fetus measurements, such as fetal abdominal diameter, abdominal circumference and femur length, become more accurate due to clearer imaging".
The GOPView Mammo3 software is intended not only for digital diagnosis but also for screening, and can be used with all mammography systems. The software preferences can be customized, and can be used to optimize images for various breast densities.
